Israel has been called the Startup Nation for the way social, historical and political factors foster a culture of entrepreneurship. This special section of ENGR 310 "Entrepreneurial Leadership" is an active learning course that covers key entrepreneurial and business start-up concepts. This special section emphasizes a comparison of culture, society and the entrepreneurship eco-systems between the U.S. and the Middle East, especially Israel. The class travels together to Israel during Spring Break. There are no pre-reqs for ENGR 310 and it is open to University Park students in any major, especially those in the Inter-College Minor in Entrepreneurship & Innovation (ENTI). ENGR 310 may satisfy tech elective requirements for Engineering majors.
During the embedded travel component, housing will consist of overnight accommodations in a hotel/hostel.
Students may apply beginning October 1 no later than November 8, 2019 by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org a current resume and statement of interest (why you want to participate and why you would be a good team member or how your participation would enhance the experience for your classmates). You will then be invited to interview with Prof. Hoag. Early applications encouraged as admission decisions will be made soon after applications are submitted.
